At first watch most viewers find many of the sequences in The Creeping Terror so unbelievably awful and ineptly executed that the movie transcends the sci-fi and horror genres and delves into the realm of comedy. But the story behind the film contains all of the elements of classic movie-making that director Art Nelson would have killed to have in The Creeping Terror. It's the sci-fi Ed Wood told by the actual people who helped bring The Creeping Terror to life, recounting the desperate tales of Art Nelson by those who knew him best. There are rather elegantly produced scenes to set up the actual, and hilarious, footage from The Creeping Terror, also included in CREEP! The real monster was behind the camera.Written by
The Creeping Terror was in production from 1962-1964, when Charles Manson was in federal prison. Manson was not released until 1967 and did not live at the Spahn Ranch until he and his "family" were evicted from their San Francisco living quarters in 1968. See more »
Well, I finally saw The Creep Behind the Camera. A documentary of the making of The Creeping Terror. If this is a true story, I wanted to waste Art J, Nelson AKA Vic Savage. I actually loved what happened to him. He lied,cheated, abused all of those around him. I loved it when his first wife, Lois, became empowered and left him. And he may have been involved in kiddie porn? With the actor who played the grandfather in Creeping Terror? (I hope that wasn't him) Also if you are wondering why the blond with the silver pants jiggling her buns in the dance hall scene had a lot of footage, hmmmmmm.
If she is still alive, a lawsuit perhaps? The actor (Josh Phillips) who played Art Nelson/Vic Savage was convincing as a vile human being. He is on par with Wings Hauser's Ramrod character from Vice Squad. I would love to put Ramrod and Art Nelson in a steel cage match. Two enter, and one leaves. Sad part is I don't care who would win as long as there is a lot of blood spilled. Yeah, I'm sadistic. NOT!
